“The constitution grants the government the right to regulate commerce. The govt has regulations concerning worker saftey. Passing out over a grill and around food processing equipment is worker and customer saftey (people release their bladder and rectum when they passes out). Falling on a hot grill could be permanently debilitating.
I ask you, why don't you want workers to be treated humanely? Even the NYC dog pound is air conditioned.”
“This is funny but it's no joke. 10% of all elderly people develop dementia. That means paranoia, uncontrollable rage, delusions, mistrust, and the complete absolute conviction that they are fine and there's something wrong with everyone else. (Kind of like Tea Partiers).
That's 30 million guns that will have to be taken away. There will be a lot of dead senior citizens and police officers in our future Sen. Corker.”

“What made you think that woman is "elderly"???”

“I thought that was the definition of TeePartiers.”

“And virtually all that 10% with dementia live with family who have no guns or are in a care center where there are no guns. Forget the fact that by the time they reach that point they don't even know what a gun is! I have to say, wow. What idiocy to say "all" 10% have guns in the first place? And what an idiotic assumption. There are many more millions of younger people--by younger I mean teens to 60--who do have guns compared to elderly. More teens to young people use guns to kill in Chicago every week than elderly do all across the country, every year! Or ten years! In fact, when was the last time you can point to an elderly person who had dementia killing someone? Give me a link. And the story better say they had dementia! And show me some facts that elderly with dementia are swooping across the country shooting people! What a jack*ss.”
“It's uncanny how they never consider their philosophy of selfishly screwing people over is the problem. It's always someone else's fault. The media, the candidate, the messaging, Rove, Hollywood, the alignment of the moon and stars.”
“Example of our private industry run health care... A dental instrument for sleep apnea which is just like a sports mouth guard ($15 Models) only a little bit fancier costs $700 in my dentist's office. There's your Americn private industry for ya! Screwing over the patient every chance.”

“My back doctor charged Medicare $1200 for a back belt. I complained to Medicare and it was like talking to my dog. The medical suppliers also are ripping off people through Medicare.”
“My God I wish the government would take over the health care system. This private sector health system is killing us. The US ranks 34th in treatment outcomes world-widebbut #1 in cost to its citizens. Even Cubans have better medical treatment than Americans, at a fraction of the cost.”

“Cubans have great medical treatment for tourists, not for their own people. Though, our system is terrible. I find it ironic that those who are against obamacare are not protesting in the streets to abolish medicare.”

“Common sense tells me that we do not rank 34th right under or before Cuba. Those scewed facts come from United Nations.”

“If you had cancer, maybe a rare cancer or a hard to treat cancer. And you had to choose one of two places for treatment, Sloan-Kettering in New York or Cuba, which one would you choose? Myself, I would take Sloan-Kettering hands down.”

“No it doesn't. You're referring to a discredited WHO survey. WHO hasn't done a ranking since the year 2000 because of the criticism. Cuban hospitals are positively disgusting. If you think staying in a place where your family has to provide food, clothes, and other basic necessities, where the place is filthy and fly ridden is better than being in a US hospital, you should move to Cuba.”
What adult doesn't know that these kind of pranks hurt people? Now multiply the hurt by millions of listeners. The DJs do it FOR RATINGS! For the money. They've done it plenty of times. They know it makes some people feel rotten. Hurts their careers and reputations. Humiliates them on a public scale they've never experienced before.
The DJs know this. It's their business. THEY DON'T CARE WHO GETS HURT! They just never messed someone up this badly before. But slightly less than suicide, and nobody would be mentioning it. Business as usual.”

“Right. And you tune into their radio station to listen to them, so YOU are their RATINGS.
Simple minded, eh?”
“There are prank calls from a couple of booted kids on a rainy afternoon and there are prank calls from professionals where you're made fun of in front of millions of people world-wide (in this case) including your co-workers, boss, family and friends.
“I'm sure the DJs knew (from past experience) that mocking people on the air hurts their careers and can humiliate some people horribly. I'm sure they know some people can take it but many suffer. Yet they keep doing it because it helps their careers. They don't give a cr@p if some people get hurt. Well they finally hit the extreme case.”

“Isn't it odd how little notice the world takes of the billions ordinary people who never dare to do anything that could be mocked be their peers. I guess that's the problem with being just like everyone else. There's nothing noteworthy about ordinary.”
